Originally built in the 1930s and extended in the 1970s in Australia was in urgent need of a modern revamp that facilitated the modern lifestyle of its young owners. Turning this mundane and poorly planned home into a breezy modern delight filled with ample natural lighting are the creative folks from Freedman White who redefined the floor plan to transform the house into a more kid-friendly setting.
It is the top floor that houses the luxurious master suite where the bedroom and bathroom become one visually even as two dashing bronze mirrors above the floating vanity steal the spotlight.
Understated modern décor and large open areas that flow into one another ensure that the kids have plenty of space to explore and enjoy in an unhindered fashion. Sliding glass doors and large windows bring in the outdoors beautifully even as large sheer curtains filter out harsh sunlight on hot summer days. Efficient and responsive to the ever-changing needs of the young family there is plenty to like about this smart Aussie home!

A large wooden deck terrace that sits right outside the open living area becomes the heart of this energy-efficient Mexican home where smart corner windows and sliding glass doors create a fabulous indoor-outdoor interplay.
